Reflecting on a past experience with a professor:

“I don’t want to mention his name, but there was an English professor. He left comments on our papers and he said ‘your English level is not ready for college level writing.’ There’s no way I could write like him. It’s impossible. I wasn’t expecting an A or an A-, but I got a horrible grade and it hurts.”
